At 1.4 million acres in size, the Atchafalaya Swamp is an unmatched wonder of America, filled with majestic cypress swamps and an incredible diversity of birds, fish, and reptiles that inhabit its skies and waterways.
Are you prepared for the outdoor challenge of Louisiana’s swamps? Brave the 61.6-mile high adventure canoe trek and test your grit in the country’s most picturesque, yet unforgiving wetland environment.
In 2010, the Evangeline Area Council made a 100 year commitment to the Atchafalaya Swamp to engage Scouts, their families, and the Acadiana community in an effort to preserve, protect, and promote the area.
In order to serve the thousands of youth that will annually participate in Swamp Base, a state-of-the-art facility is being developed to conduct, support, and ensure that all can experience the Atchafalaya.
